Letters and Opinions

These are opinion pieces that I have had published in a variety of newspapers and magazines. I have been writing letters-to-the-editor since 2006, and have had over 160 published since then. I also play guitar and sing in a musical revue called The Loser's Lounge. With a cast of guest singers, we perform tributes to great songwriters and bands. The show is in its 24th year, and we perform at Joe's Pub - The Public Theater and Lincoln Center in New York City.

The Brooklyn Paper published this letter on December 4, 2009.

It is disturbing that some Park Slope eateries may be underpaying their delivery workers ("State probe outs Slope pay fraud," Nov. 27), but a boycott will not be an effective method of expressing dissatisfaction with this practice. Such action would only hurt those wronged by the restaurants. I think the embarrassing media attention combined with the penalties assessed by the state Department of Labor will persuade these establishments to correct any unfair compensation. Perhaps the best support that can be shown for these workers is the continued use of their services and a generous gratuity.
